Onions, and oranges, and salt, oh my! Though this combination of ingredients would normally not go together, Nicole Murphy is using them to cook up a home remedy in hopes of combating the coronavirus.


On her Instagram story, Murphy showed a pot of boiling water with oranges, onions, and sea salt.

“I don’t know if it works, but I’m willing to try it… Apparently the corona cannot live in extreme heat. This is what I found out. The virus gets into your nasal passage, it gets down into your throat, and then it hits your lungs, which is a problem.”

The 52-year-old says she’s not sure (and neither are we) if the remedy actually works but since it’s natural she’s giving it a try.

“It actually smells really, really, really good… If it helps me, I’m down to try it. And it’s natural, it can’t hurt. It’s just 15 minutes and 20 minutes out of your day.”

Everyone has been on edge with the coronavirus pandemic as the deadly virus knows no race, gender, or income. Earlier this week, Idris Elba released a video sharing that he had tested positive. In an effort to comfort and entertain fans, other celebrities like John Legend and Debbie Allen put on free live specials via social media.
